    So, I'm almost done with Speed Planet Optimus Prime. He is a Rodimus homage, it being speed planet and all, but I don't want call him Rodimus Prime. I'm stuck between Velocitron Prime or Rodimus Convoy.

    For ya'll that don't know, I've been doing 1 alternate version of Optimus Prime from each of the planets mentioned in the Cybertron Series. Kind of a "What if" thing, getting reformatted by the combo of that planet's key and the Matrix. All 6 of them are called the Prime Directive". So to me, the name is kinda important.

    Sorry about the pics, I'll take better ones when he's decaled and done. In the fourh pic are the decals.

    If you can up with cooler name, please hit me with it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Fortress Maximus is it? :lol  just kiddin'. hmm.. a name to fit in with the others would honestly BE Rodimus Prime I think, as you have "Prime" in all the other names, and the two homages you've already done kept their respective names as well.

    Yeah, it makes the most sense. It's just that Rodimus Prime is already a character, ya know? That, and I have a personal grudge against Hot Rod. :thumbdown 

    I'm hoping someone can come up with something.

    Usually when I have a hard time coming up with a name, I think of the character, and his/her basis of operation, since this Prime is from the Speed Planet, I just looked up synonyms for speed:

    http://thesaurus.reference.com/browse/speed

    Find the one(s) you like, and play with the "Prime" part of the name, either in front or behind the word(s) you like.

    This usually works for me....its how Alt Hammerlock got his name. :thumb

    Thanks, I had a look at the link.

    I kinda like Overdrive Prime. So far, so good.
    I like God Convoy, too. I just want something speed related in the name. Velocitron Convoy? That's cool, too.
